This spacious neighborhood watering hole in (you guessed it) Atwater Village serves up a big selection of brews -- including rotating craft selections -- and some affordably priced, generously poured house cocktails. Teaming up with the folks at Stop, Guac n Roll Mexican Smokehouse to create a menu of BBQ and Mexican fusion fare, food at Atwater runs the gamut from fish tacos to chipotle chicken sandwiches to vegetarian friendly options.
Not just what Andrew Bynum does on the block after he's just gotten his teeth whitened, Post & Beam's also an open-kitchen, minimalist gastrobistro w/ a wood-heavy interior and patio, plus its own herb garden right outside, all from a dream team including a Wolfgang Puck dude, the guy behind BLT Steak, and food from Govind Armstrong, who's seen on TV nearly as much as Animal Cops: Detroit.
This lively cantina has no shortage of Mexican dishes and margaritas served up amidst colorful, beachy decor.
This small, casual eatery serves French dishes with weekly specials and a Sunday champagne brunch. Take a seat on the outdoor patio to enjoy those beautiful So Cla days.
This Culver City bar/restaurant sports an old-school Chicago vibe, gourmet American eats (bison burgers & truffle fries), and six different eating & drinking areas all under one roof.
This Hawaiian Culver City eatery from the Roy Choi is an Asian-fusion collaboration in a totally refurbished IHOP, hopped up with a picnic-type patio and light wood-clad walls. Food's meant to be utensil-optional, with inventive dishes like green curry and a poké sampler including choices like tuna with gochujang sauce, sesame leaves & oil, cabbage, seaweed, and nori, as well as tuna with kukui nut chili pesto and Parmesan.
Housed in a 1920s flatiron building and once owned by John Wayne -- and is rumored to be where the Munchkins from The Wizard of Oz partied after filming -- the Culver Hotel is something of a Hollywood novelty. But its bar… isn’t. It’s a straight-out-of-the-20s speakeasy with a tinge of old-school Parisian boudoir. It’s dark, and only open after 8pm. This is not the place to see and be seen, but rather, the place to hide amongst the scene, with live music, craft cocktails, and paranormal activity from the ghosts of Hollywood past.
This upscale eatery, located inside the Omni Hotel, specializes in Californian cuisine. You don't have to be a hotel guest to hit up their amazing brunch, which gets you buffet access with a carving station, seafood, and mimosas.
Constantly locked in battle with Philippe for the enviable "oldest French dip in LA" crown, Cole’s P.E. Buffet first opened its doors to thirsty commuters arriving on Red Car trolleys to the Pacific Electric terminal beginning in 1908. The bar endured the dry years with 3¢ bitters and 10¢ "near beers", but really made bank with the city’s first check-cashing service conveniently located within the bar. The Cedd Moses revamp added the speakeasy-style back bar, The Varnish, and a few modern touches (no more sawdust-covered floors! New pickled eggs!), but hung onto the original, massive front mahogany bar, Tiffany lampshades, and old oak tables made from old railway cars.
Tucked into the Luxe Hotel, S&M Kitchen (... wait) is serving some of Downtown LA's trendiest eats, from chicken liver terrine to beef culotte and garden green gnocchi, with killer outdoor seating.
The Must is... a must (sorry, we had to). Sign up for their pork pie, delicious French fries, and delicious tater tots. You won't regret it.
A modern-minimalist sleeve with banquette seating and 12-15 rotating selections scrawled on a slate wall, Bacaro LA was started up by a man who's paid his vino dues: as a sommelier (at AOC), a retail employee (Silverlake Wine), and a wine-speakeasy founder (in the courtyard of a friend's apartment -- he's the one who buzzed you in).
Finally opening to the public on Thursday, Artisan House's basically what would happen if you took every place you might go in a typical day, subtracted the orthodontist and Pilates center, and made each one of said places uniformly awesome, resulting in a multi-purpose 10000sqft, turn-of-the-20th-century-themed warehouse-ish space housing a resto, marketplace, and bar under 24ft-high ceilings with hardwood floors and marble tabletops that once served as the building's original floor.
This Downtown LA spot serves upscale modern Mexican food in a vibrant setting, with food expertly crafted by Executive Chef Alex Moreno.
This casual gastropub inside downtown's Alexandria Hotel channels New Orleans' joie de vivre in its decor, Cajun-influenced menu, and anything goes vibe. The French Quarter-like space is split between a small bar in the front and a swankier parlor in the back with a fountain and porch swing. Absinthe-based cocktails, po' boy sliders, and fluffy beignets are the go-to food and drink move.
Hair of the dog has never been more delicious: this Downtown outpost of the Mexican mini-chain has a brunch that includes four beer-battered waffle variations, as well as a chorizo breakfast burger with Oaxacan cheese. Ceviche, enchiladas, and even $1 happy hour oysters ought to keep you busy the rest of the day.
Don and Laura Adams brought to us Eclectic Fine Food & Spirits which has been killing the brunch and happy hour game in North Hollywood for some time. If you're looking for a new spot to post up, look no further.
Originally built as a tap room in 1941, Idle Hour has been refurbished and reopened into a shining example of what every bar shaped like a giant whiskey barrel should be. Cocktails on tap, a top-notch patio out back, and even a separate private party annex that's shaped like a giant, pipe-smoking bulldog (everything is shaped like something!!) take this Vineland drinking destination to the next level.
Grandly opening on Sat in the land of unbearable heat and Bayside Tigers rivals, River Rock Lounge's sorta like an apres-ski bar (w/ food!), housing rock walls, mounted, all-white buffalo heads, and antler chandeliers inside what was once a regular watering hole for old-school stars like Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra.
Jinky's is known for delicious chilies (they have a whole separate menu for them) and plenty of filling breakfast fare. Try the Desperado breakfast burrito with eggs, red onions, diced tomatoes, Ortega chiles, cheddar cheese, chopped potatoes, and Jody Maroni turkey-chicken chorizo. Pair that with a Bloody Mary, and you got yourself one of the best brunch experiences in Studio City.
The second location of the vaunted Pico gastrobistro's now open in the Valley, offering simple American comfort vittles (Turkey Sloppy Joe Sliders with fried housemade pickles, a pot pie with braised short rib, thin crust pizzas, etc.), plus cocktails (Bruce Lee's Kickin' Mai Thai, The McQueen Bullitt) all from a damn cozy interior featuring artfully worn leather seating, mercury-dipped Edison bulb lights, and a bar crafted from recycled wooden wine crates and aged copper, also what Flattop says when Dick Tracy asks him how he likes his wines.
Check out Lot 1 Cafe to hear local bands play or to grab a two dollar pint of PBR, daily till 9p. If that wasn't enough to get you down there, they also do a wicked brunch deal.
From the art deco posters on the red walls to the sidewalk seating to the classic bistro fare, La Poubelle is French to the core and a mainstay in the heart of Hollywood. Traditional plates like coq au vin, moules frites, and confit de canard fill the menu, as does a solid list of cocktails, wine, and beer. This romantic spot also has a private event space, The Gold Room, that can be rented for birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, bridal & baby showers, and holiday events.
Hair of the Dog is a Portland brewery that only makes 600 barrels of beer a year, and only sells them in three markets, two of which have terrible, depressing weather. And now they are available at Maximiliano's beer dinner, featuring six suds-paired courses like baked Fanny Bay oysters w/ bacon confit (matched with a 10% ABV Old Ale) and braised pork belly with dry fig and cherry gastrique alongside a Flanders red ale.
Off Vine, in Hollywood, is serving up some of the best Californian comfort food in the LA area. Everything about this quaint little spot will charm you, right down to unlimited mimosas for brunch.
The Hollywood Corner has daily specials which change constantly and frequently. They also have unlimited mimosas for brunch, so there's that.
This lively cantina has no shortage of Mexican dishes and margaritas served up amidst colorful, beachy decor. Their bottomless brunch is a complete deal at $9.95 for bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas with any $5 food purchase.
This cheery, counter-service eatery offers sandwiches, salads, soups and a bottomless brunch.
